My high school was open the whole time I was there, and it still is now. I only know that it is an open campus because of the research I’ve done. My opinion on this topic is that schools should not be closed during the day. My junior and senior years of high school, I had the opportunity to leave during my flex period and lunch. I couldn’t do this every day, just three days out of the week.
My friend's family from elementary school have me an opportunity to live with them. My grades averaged out to a C which allowed me to see my junior year in high school. My hopes of becoming a senior and finishing high school were fading fast, I knew I would not make it. But, I managed to see my first and only group home. I needed to free myself of any street activities in order to prosper.
I’m thrilled to say today is the first day of my final semester of college. I felt discouraged when I started this journey two years ago because I had been out of school and wasn’t entirely sure what to expect. I feel so blessed that I was able to make time and do something solely for myself. I feel empowered to finish strong and know I will have earned my bachelor’s degree in just two years while continuing two
This whole life-changing experience had opened my eyes because it showed me how to step up and take responsibility in such a short amount of time. I went from being sixteen and carefree to being a mother in a matter of weeks. Having a child had also shown me how the real world is like. Sometimes, this all feels like a dream and I feel as though I would just wake up and it would be over. But this is real life.
Studies and my future came last in my mind. Once freshman year and summer were over and the senior boyfriend was gone. I had a wakeup call to figure out who I was because the person I was, was not going to cut it. The following year I became extremely involved
I found some of my other friends and started talking to them as well. Once the bell rang we all hustled to our new classes, because we didn’t want to be late. I had Ms. Yarrow, Mr.Lee, and Mrs.Shizzle. The first day went by great and I had amazing teachers with a lot of my friends in my classes. When I got home that day I ran off the bus all the way down to our house and was so excited to tell my parents about my day.
It pays to be a winner, as my effort and dedication produced a fruitful harvest. Hell’s Year educated me to take the necessary prudent actions and to never take anything to chance. I am the one that controls my destiny. Hell’s Year also transformed me from the uninspiring freshman to the motivated, sophisticated and competed senior I am today. Looking back at the first two years of high school, I realized that just made scratches to the layers of struggles life has prepared for me for the future.
I work closely with Medical nurse and doctors, as well as psychiatric nurses and doctors. This experience has given me the ability to learn what mindfulness practices works for me, in order for me to be able to continue to service my clients, without become too overwhelmed. There is still much for me to learn before I can actually obtain my MSW, but with my coursework and current experience, I feel that I will successfully complete my goals. I plan to obtain my MSW within 6 months, however study and take my licensing exam in about 3 months. Being as though I will need about one hundred hours to qualify for my knowledge test to become a translator I will give myself about 2 years to complete, however I would like to be certified within a year of receiving my LSW.
Boom Senior year has only yet to begin. Senior year is finally here! Everyone has lived for the moment of starting and ending senior year. It’s the last year we have the opportunity to be with everyone and the last year to live as children before real adulthood comes. At the beginning of the school year I knew this was my year to live my life to the fullest… then BOOM!
I gained a tremendous amount of self awareness and confidence, and have been more healthy minded than ever before. Ever since the moment I first visited my querencia, I knew I would have an emotional attachment to it, but little did I know that this small, simple location could make me become more spiritual, peaceful, and mentally stable than ever before. My grandparents house is my safe spot and I know that whatever happens during my lifetime, it’ll be there for me. To this day, I still get chills down my spine when I find out that I will return to their house. I will never forget the nostalgic times I’ve had which have gave me support and strength when I most needed it.
This being my senior year I always expected it to be the most laid back and relaxing year of my life. When in fact I set myself up for one of the biggest challenges of my life, by signing up for multiple online college classes and playing football for the first time since freshman year. Although, under all this immense pressure, this is where my true colors came out. I didn’t stop working to my full potential
Then we were told we were told Arizona’s school policy only allowed six year olds into kindergarten. In California, we started school a year earlier. They asked if I wanted to join preschool, but I already finished preschool. So I had to wait a year. For me, I was happy.
Everything happened so fast. I had only worked for SFC Joe Smith for a little over three months. The first incident had occurred when I was updating the computers prior to the opening of the facility to students. SFC Joe Smith had given me a warning that he only wanted me to update the computers at the end of the duty day. The problem with that was I did not know how long it would take to update the computers and I had to pick up my daughter before the daycare closed at 5:30 P.M.
This was one of the happiest days of my life because I knew in the future I would reflect back on my experience and think to myself I made it this far with so many complications that I know I can overcome anything life would throw at me. Although I did not graduate with honor society or one of the highest grades I still have the satisfaction of having my diploma and knowing I overcame all my failures in middle school. I’m proud to say thank you to my teacher who never let me down and always told me I can do it because of her I showed her my effort was more than
In August two-thousand fifteen i started my eighth grade year at Watkins Memorial middle school , it is the final year in the middle school which means we 're the oldest out of all three grades. With us being the oldest out of all three grades that means a lot of the sixth and seventh graders look up to us watch what we do , so we have to be good role models and set a good example so when we go to Watkins Memorial High school they will not have us here and will have to be able to continue what we started and set good examples for more kids. A couple days after eighth grade started on August twenty-third it was my thirteenth birthday, and i happy to finally be a teenager ! My mom decorated my room with a bunch of streamers and balloons everywhere while i was at school. On the balloon strings were little notes and pictures starting from when i was born until my i turned thirteen.
